Well, I have been wanting a US Spector ever since the late 80's when Kramer started advertising them on the back covers of the guitar magazines at the time. To date I have owned 3 Korean NS-2a's, an NS-2000/5, and an czech NS-5CR. While IMO they were all GREAT basses, this one is by far the "King Salami" of them all! It was honestly worth the wait! It is a 1990 Kramer era USA NS-2, in an oil finish, 99% mint!! Even the OHSC is in cherry condition. I absolutely love the finish on the quilted maple, and the sound from the EMG/hazlab config is to die for! My only wish: it is lacking the trademark Spector crown inlays, that is something I had always wanted. But, I scored this one for a little over $900, and am playing it too much to notice it has dot inlays lol. What do you all think?
